Delta County Memorial Hospital Volunteer Chaplains
In partnership with area clergy, Delta County Memorial Hospital has created an on-call Chaplain program. This hospital is dedicated to providing the community with consistently high quality health care, we also felt is important to offer spiritual care as a valued added service.
Volunteer Chaplains have a weekly call rotation and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This service is available to patients and family members.
The goal is to first contact the patient's own clergy or pastor if the need arises; if they are not available then the Chaplain on-call will be contacted.
If you wish pastoral care and do not have someone available, please tell your nurse or contact the case managers at 874-2253.
During a time of illness, patients often feel frightened, discouraged, bewildered or emotionally drained.
In patients' hearts they may be troubled and asking:
"Why is this happening to me?"
"Where is God in all of this pain and suffering?"
"What can I hope for now?"
"Who can I turn to?"
Volunteer Chaplains are Available:
To help sort out questions
To assist in discovering sources of hope & strength
To offer support to patients and their family members
